Ninja can pretty much make any game the #1 watched game on Twitch, and that is amazing.Saw Lirik play it, he seemed to be enjoying it. Right now Ninja and TimTheTatman are playing and liking it a lot. Atm it's the most watched game on steam (due to Ninja's 100k+ viewers).
The waiting for armor to build time is some butt puckering tense shit.At the end game (20 or fewer) most people have full legendary armor or close to it. That's effectively double HP. 1200 armor + 1200 hp. By contrast I think a full set of white armor is +200 armor.
The fact you can make armor and don't have to just find it like PUBG means it's way way more prolific. Some may think that's bad, but honestly with the TTK on legendary weapons/abilities it's perfectly acceptable. A fucking ranger can still almost two shot you in full legendary in about 2 seconds flat at any range.
